  • Wikileaks finds a way

    Wikileaks always finds a way to keep information flowing. Whether they are doing it for good or bad reasons, the source is very useful for finding out information that is supposed to be hidden. They will probably jeopardize the country's government secrecy, but that is not a form of privacy anywhere.

  • The WikiLeaks Turkey-related release is only the tip of the iceberg

    WikiLeaks has been at the forefront of many earth-shattering revelations and the latest is just another instance: several hundred thousand emails exposing how Turkey's government was planning on handling their post-coup purges. This new information is only the beginning: now that the floodgates are open, it will be considered ok to release more.

  • I'm not sure

    Turkey has since blocked access to WikiLeaks, and it's likely that other such "administrative measures" will be taken to stop the flow of information. Not to say that there aren't other ways to get the information, but routine internet shutdowns as a response to political events are common practice in Turkey. So leaks seem to cause more attempts to lockdown information.

  • Most of the emails were spam or meaningless

    Although there may be a little bit of interesting information contained in those leaks, many of those emails were simply spam advertisements and mundane emails regarding government functions. It's possible that something in there will be the proof that the entire coup was staged, but I certainly wouldn't count on it. In this day and age I would hope that conspirators are a little more careful.
